Photographs by Miguel Trillo.
ACTAR, 2009. 272 pp., Numerous color illustrations, 9x8½".
Retrospective catalogue of the photographer Miguel Trillo (Jimena de la Frontera, Cádiz, 1953), his work could be catagorized as photo-documental, (though his first works had a clear experimental vocation), the source of the encounter between the artist and his models is (almost) always accidental and clearly exposes the photographed subjects in their daily and habitual contexts. Since the beginning of the 80's Miguel Trillo has depicted anonymous protagonists from what was know as the 'Movement' in Madrid, and has documented the evolution of urban 'tribes', (Mods, Punks, Goths (Death-rockers), Rappers, Head Bangers...) over the last 3 decades all over the world. His photographs depict adolescents and young adults trying to find their identities through the assumption of determined attire and or behaviour, that also reflect the contradictions of a society that has experimented a profound transformation in a very short period of time.
